    Timing belt replacement interval - time, not mileage

    Thanks guys, I pulled the old belt, water pump tensioner, & roller. Pulled off the cam sprocket and repositioned it in the correct orientation and now all is well.

    Timing belt replacement interval - time, not mileage

    I'd need to remove the cam pin tool in order to rotate the sprocket 120 degrees counter clockwise though. Does this make sense? I just want to make sure the camshaft isn't going to spin once I remove the pin to remove and rotate the sprocket.

    Timing belt replacement interval - time, not mileage

    I've run into a small issue (hopefully) and I'm looking for some advice please. Here are a couple of pictures showing the crank lined up and locked in place along with the camshaft lined up.

    Whitbread Passat B5.5 BHW GTB2260VK build

    Timing belt replacement interval - time, not mileage

    Has VW or the timing belt manufacturer's (Gates or Continental) given us a time limit or time interval change on our timing belts? I know the mileage interval is 80k, but what about time? I don't drive my car nearly as much as I used to, so it'll be years before I hit the next mileage interval.

    new to me 2005 passat wagon on a tow dolly . WELL THAT DIDN'T LAST LONG

    Buy the genuine cable from Ross-Tech directly or an authorized reseller. Don't skimp out for a generic / fake cable. It's a small investment to make and it pays for itself quickly vs paying for a dealer or repair shop to diagnose your vehicle. https://store.ross-tech.com/shop/cat/VCDS...

    BHAF for B5.5

    I have a 2260 turbo on mine with the stock air box setup and it works perfectly fine. I'd personally never use a cone filter AKA hot air intake that sucks in hot air from inside the engine bay.

    The car is sold! I hope the new owner enjoys it as much as I did. I will miss her though!

    Thank you Tomo, I appreciate it. I hope you and your family are doing well! We do have similar taste as I now drive a Jeep Grand Cherokee EcoDiesel as my daily and the wife drives a BMW 328d x drive too! I still have the 05 Passat, but that may be going up for sale sooner than later.
